Trump Magazine was founded in 2007 by Trump World Media, a subsidiary of the Trump Organization. The magazine was initially distributed for free to guests of Trump-owned hotels, resorts, and golf clubs, and was intended to serve as a high-end lifestyle publication that would promote the Trump brand.

Prior to the launch of Trump Magazine, Trump had experience in the magazine industry, having launched Trump Style and Trump World in the past.

The magazine included glossy photo spreads of Trump-owned properties, as well as articles about the Trump Organization's business strategies and financial performance.
